The global pandemic has changed the way we work – and for many manufacturers, the change will be permanent

The impact of COVID-19, and subsequent changes in how factories are located, staffed, and managed is placing pressure on manufacturing operations leaders to accelerate the pace of digitization. Already challenged by an aging, retiring workforce, increasing skills gap, and labor shortages, a new set of concerns have emerged during the global pandemic.

Collaboration remains critical for frontline workers to help solve problems and increase productivity, yet many leaders are now faced with the reality of a distributed and remote workforce. This has forced them to think differently about how they build, install, maintain, and service their products. These pressures have focused energy towards workforce development and optimizing manufacturing workflows. To meet these challenges, leading manufacturers are now turning to digital and connected worker technology to maintain business continuity and advance operations. 

Digital technologies such as artificial intelligence (AI) and augmented reality (AR) are now central to the corporate innovation portfolio of any business leader and crucial to boosting productivity. Solutions that intelligently guide and securely connect workers for productivity, safety, and quality gains are becoming more common and are empowering manufacturers to transform their business and provide a much-needed solution to the new normal.

Manufacturers are now starting to leverage digital tools to improve worker safety, quality, and productivity. The combination of digital work instructions and real-time support for workers not only provides a complete Worker support solution, but also helps operations managers better understand utilization and efficiency of workforce and identify opportunities for improvement.

In this webinar, you will:

  • Learn how to extend the principles of OEE to the manufacturing workforce
  • Hear proven approaches that leverage AI and connected worker technology to digitize manufacturing processes and uncover opportunities for improved worker efficiency and effectiveness
